Messed up spi?

On my way to wrk i see a car pulled over, a 2001ish focus sedan. Two old ladies with the hood open trying to jump the car with another car so i stop, they look at my car, smile, then ask for help because the car is acting weird. I quickly glance and its an spi, i was already thinking shes fkd. The problem wasnt the battery because the car cranked when i quickly tried it, everything was shaking all over the place. She said she was driving then the engine started hesitating followed by loud clanking noise and it shut off. Explained there wasnt much i can do, that it prob was valve seat failure, shes looked at me in "wtf mode". Told them to call a mechanic and have it towed asap. I felt sorry for them, had to leave cause i was already running a lil late for work.

Sad story bro'
